Dr. Josef Olmert: “The majority of Israeli Arabs are disgusted” by Tel Aviv attacks

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Last night I spoke to Professor Joseph Olmert -- a former high-ranking Israeli official, and brother of former Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert -- about the terror attack on a Tel Aviv market that left four dead.

Yes, the State of Israel has the right to coexist with the Palestine. Israel, by and large, was a tool for American Cold War foreign policy, that hurt the Arab Muslim and Christian minorities.

Harper, do to his membership within the evangelical/fundamentalist community was too friendly and uncritical of Israel.

Canada needs to stand up to Israeli aggressions, and support all for peace.

Should we abandon Israel? No, but we have the moral obligation to be more critical of it. We need to treat Israel with some tender loving harshness

I was just in Israel for a month traveling and went to virtually all parts of the country including to Palestine twice (Nablus, Janin, and Bethlehem. I arrived with an open mind and left as an Israeli Semite. Appreciating that this is a generalization, Israeli Jews are not friendly – curt, rude and abrupt and show no interest in you if you a gentile – easily the least friendly people in the world.
What they have done to the Palestinians (and continue to do) is not only illegal but immoral. And this is underwritten by America, the basis of all their power. Everyone should read “The Ethic Cleansing of Palestine” and "Extreme Rambling – Walking Israel’s Border Fence for Fun before forming opinions on Israeli. Then they need to visit the country and spend time n Palestine and talk to these lovely people. If I had been sh*t upon as much as these people – with absolutely no end in sight – I would probably shoot a few Israelis too. They tried suicide bombs, then peaceful protest and now are returning to violence out of pure frustration.

There are MANY decent Israeli Arabs, who know that they’d have it worse anywhere else and have no desire to upset the apple cart. It’s even possible to find some that are somewhat right-wing – moreso than the mayor of Tel Aviv, anyway.

There is also a significant minority that have strong sympathies for terrorists.
Fortunately, most know better than to act on those sympathies, so overall, the situation in pre-1967 Israel, where about 20% of the citizens are Arab, is quite decent – better than in much of Europe, actually (and not just for the Jews – for Israeli Arabs, too).

I feel like throwing up when I hear that little POS Trudeau in that odious Ramadan speech. Has the man no sense of reality? There was just ANOTHER attack in Tel Aviv, and ISIL keeps on on killing women. What is wrong with this jerk?

John Siciliano, the attacks on Israel started about 10 minutes after they became a country. Surrounding arab countries, who fire up the Palestinians, say that they will accept nothing but Israel wiped out. They will not compromise. Its silly buggars like you that whine and incite hatred against Israel.
commented 2016-06-10 13:58:27 -0400
It seems that John Siciliano has been reading and believing too much of the evil and mendacious Noam Chomsky, perhaps, and too many anti-Israeli, anti-Christian fairy tales. The video clip shown by the odious leftist propagandist Rachel Maddow is irrelevant to the current Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
Palestinians waved flags of joyful victory on September 11th, 2001.
Terrorism is the Palestinian way.
Speaking of liars, Mr. Siciliano, check out the now demised Yassser Arafat, disgusting former craven leader of the Palestinian cause.
Check out reality, not leftist, neo-marxist, pro-jihadist distortions of the truth.

The Iran deal was another example of PM Netanyahu lying with regards to the nuclear deal. Here is the clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RyumsNaeVE

This clip clearly shows that PM Netanyahu will do anything to advance his agenda of war. Let us not forget that in September of 2002 he made a speech in Washington about Iraq. He lied about WMDs and nuclear weapons and the Niger connection. People that are interventionist hate seeing clips such as this because they know what their foreign policy has brought to the world. People back then wanted pause before a war was launched. The people at the time did not care. They just wanted to proceed forward. They wanted to bow before their masters in Israel. Which is why I always say those you cannot criticize are therefore your masters as preached by Voltaire.

The interventionists also hate to see clips like this because it shows with clear clips for the world to see, which is that politicians will lie and stick with those lies to advance an agenda. I have been saying this since 2005 and people still continue to believe that war is the only solution. Peace is hard to come by these days. The good thing about the Internet is what people say will remain on there for eternity or until the Internet ends. That is fortunate for anti-war people that want peace and want real ways to end war!

People that are interventionist forget that we have been in an endless state of war since 2002. That is nearly 15 years. No wonder the world is in the state it is in.

The numbers of Palestinian dead far outweigh the Israeli ones and we cannot forget that Palestinian land has been stolen by the Israelis. They wish to lie and cheat and get the US to veto all resolutions brought up against Israel. That is an absolute fact. The Israel regime also gets the US to fight its wars. Do not forget about the lies regarding Iraq and even Netanyahu spoke in front of the US congress and senate back in the early 2000’s speaking about the same sort of garbage like with Iran that we are seeing today.

The point is Israel lies and will always lie and the only ones dumb enough to believe them are Christian fundamentalists that want the rapture to happen so that everyone will be forced to convert to Christianity and they hope the rapture will happen which means the end of the world. This is what Christian fundamentalists truly believe. Scary huh right Jay Kelly.

That is why they cannot be taken seriously. Many at the time spoke that way about the Alliance party how they were very much for invading Iraq which did create chaos. We now see the full agenda of Israel, the United States and Christian fundys everywhere!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpQdg4D78Jc – Netanyahu lying about Iraq nuclear weapons!

I guess Netanyahu lies and knows people will never challenge him. No one would dare challenge the Israel lobby and the state of Israel.

Do not forget Jay that Israel is now isolated and many now support Palestine because people see the real agenda of Israel which is to lie and waste time and build settlements in the process. They are doing that till all the Palestinian land is taken. Do not forget that Palestinians based on the 1948 resolution in the UN which gave birth to the state of what they call Israel stated that Palestinians have the right to return and any land stolen was supposed to be compensated. The Israelis have done neither one. That proves that they have went against those resolutions and Palestinians are entitled to land and property that was taken by the interventionist, warmongering and conquering Israelis. Of course, Levant and Rebel and most interventionist and pro-war news stations whitewash these facts and would have you believe that they were given the land by God but that is faith-based nonsense which is based on belief and that does not wash in today’s world. People should believe what they want in the comfort of their own home and their own place of worship and not in real life. In real life, governments and organizations are supposed to conduct everything based on evidence, facts and objective tendencies. That is something which is completely foreign to people that do not live in the real world like Rebel. They are completely tied to Israel and I wonder if they even love Canada. It seems to me they like a foreign government more than Canada! Their version of Canada is selling out to Ukraine, Israel and foreign powers to advance their agenda!

So you would rather we act like gorillas Deborah Grauper and never be peaceful? It does fit a lot into the foreign policy of interventionists and pro-war people that we just use nuclear weapons and let I guess God sort it out.

Sounds to me that you just proved to me and peacemakers everywhere that the wrong people get involved in politics and conservatives are very much anti-human!

“The real divides in our region are not between Palestinians and Israelis, or between left-wingers and right-wingers, pragmatists and delusionists, religious and secular. The divides that matter are between those who strive to hold on to their sense of what is right and moral, no matter how abused they feel, and those who embrace hatred and vengeance; between those who mourn the loss of any innocents and those who are so busy vilifying the “other” that they’ve lost any semblance of compassion. Between those who know that “truth” is complicated and often contradictory and those who believe theirs is the only truth.”

To use Acuuna’s logic …

I believe what I see. All I see is that Canada has a majority Liberal government.
commented 2016-06-10 09:30:57 -0400
Acuuna, did you see all arabs "flapping around shouting, " death to Israel "?

There are no doubt some that don’t want the conflict. There are no doubt some that do not hate the Jews.

I am not sure I believe him – providing him a platform to speak also provides him a platform too camouflage the trouble.

Sounding reasonable makes it easy for those who listen to him to believe the Islamic issues are with a minority of people in that part of the world.

I will never believe that – after living in that part of the world I am leaning towards thinking he is an apologist.

I had just watched a video on Youtube last week trying to understand this entire Israel/Palestine issue. The first one I saw said the Palestines were the peaceful people, they were happily living in the area Israel gave them until they came back in and put settlements on that land too. It said there would have been peace long ago if Israel would just leave them along and stick to the deal. Palestine is full of Muslims so I just can’t accept it as the truth that they are all ‘peacefilled’ and non confrontational. I’ve heard so many bad things about the President of Israel, its hard to know what to really believe. (with the exception of the terrorizing/killing the Palestines are doing b.c it seems Muslims are not peaceful ANYWHERE they go).
